I have grown Becky Lynn in my garden for many years now. I love the blooms! I was surprised to see that it is supposed to bloom extra early. In my garden I would call it Midseason-Late! I have it planted on an exposed slope that gets mostly morning sun. Until this past year I never mulched or fertilized it and it has always performed well for me. Recommended!
